All pets must be at least 8 weeks old to receive vaccines and 12 weeks old to receive a rabies vaccine. All dogs MUST be on a leash at all times, and cats MUST be in a proper pet carrier.

Please note that we expect to see over 300 animals and you will experience a prolonged wait time. Due to the high volume of unvaccinated animals attending this event, your pet will be at a higher risk for contracting a pet-related illness. Yakima Humane will not be held liable if your pet becomes ill.
